Wandering Rose

Gypsy RoseThe Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

Costa Rica: Peninsula Papagayo

Our Costa Rican adventure starts out in Guanacaste at the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo. A "hardship post" for sure! Nine days of pampered bliss with in-laws, playing in the surf with my nephews, devouring fresh local fruit, fish and seafood, and generally shaking off the Adirondack winter.

Costa Rica Countdown: 3, 2, 1...

It's time for a mid-winter escape from the Adirondacks. And what better destination than Costa Rica? For the second year in a row my wife and I are venturing to the jewel of Central America with in-laws for ten incredibdle days at the Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo. After that we join our friends Amy and Brian who winter in Tamarindo, but unlike last year when we fired straight off to Nosara, this year we're headed inland to Lake Arenal. Volcano. Hot springs. Windsurfing. Then down to Tamarindo for some surf, surf, surfing!

Check out her Fiesta Americana Grand Aqua review, about a new, ostensibly chichi hotel in Cancun (though judging from the photos and review it appears less "exclusive-posh" and more "mega-resort-posh").
